Finished interior stairs are perhaps the toughest challenge that a wood worker will face and are often the exclusive domain of the "stair specialist". This is particularly true with the more complicated systems such as circular stairs. However, when it comes to straight runs, adjustable bracket systems greatly simplify the process. Using adjustable bracket systems allow a person with only basic skills to build a well finished interior stair with a high degree of accuracy and elegance.
A stair lift is not only something that has a lot of significance for the concerned people, but is also a major investment. This is the reason that makes it important that a stair lift has to be just right and adequate to the needs as well as safe. If you are the one for quality, then two manufacturers are there who are famous for their best quality. One is Stannah and the other is Bruno. Stannah is a UK manufacturer while the latter is a US manufacturer of stair lifts. The manufacturers and models for the straight and curved stair-lifts differ and there are different companies that have established a great name in their respective kinds of stair lifts. For the curved stair lift, ThyssenKrupp Access and Bruno manufacture the most popular and top quality models. ThyssenKrupp Access offers the model Stair Glide and Flow II in curved stair lifts and Bruno makes the curved stair lift, which is the Electra-Ride III.
ThyssenKrupp’s Stair-Glide has advanced features, the most significant of which is the hand pendant control; fold up arms and the foot obstruction sensors. In addition to these features, the stair lift also has over speed brake and a joystick control on the arm, which makes the control easier even for people who are not able to use their hands properly. Stairs are composed of stringers, stair treads and stair risers. The stringers are the slanted members on the sides of the stairs which sit on the floor and are tightly attached at the top of the staircase. In most stair construction, there are two stringers installed on each set of steps. The stair treads are the sections in which you step on to travel up and down the stairs. Stair treads are usually made of wood.
If you do not have enough money to buy stair lifts, do not worry as you can always opt for stair lift rental. People do not need to stay confined at one place if the two legs given to them are working properly. But sometimes it so happens that due to some reason or the other the ability to walk is lost. You cannot move about freely and you cannot even go up and down the stairs as and when you require. Losing the ability to walk is really painful. Most of the time, one needs to remain confined at one place. You might break your leg or have some pain in your leg. The legs might even be paralyzed or there might be illness like arthritis which forces a person to stop the movement of the legs. At that point of time going up and coming down the stairs becomes a serious problem.
In fact, the best time to add a stair lift system may be before it is actually a requirement. There are plenty of seniors who may not be disabled, but who experience intermittent conditions, such as an arthritic knee or hip, that make climbing stairs a challenge some of the time. Stair lifts can be installed in straight or curved staircases. Most models today run on rechargeable DC battery packs that hold a charge for around 8 to 10 trips up and down, depending on the length of the track and the weight of the person it is transporting. Some of these battery packs have chargers mounted next to the top or bottom of the lift track, while others are able to recharge from anywhere along the track. DC powered stair lifts are the preferred style today because they still work (for a while anyway) if the AC power to the household is cut. Many seniors, through no fault of their own, lose the ability to go up and down staircases with agility. And many of them have strong emotional ties to the house in which they live. A stair lift can make the difference between allowing a senior to have significant independence of daily living and having to making the difficult choice of selling a beloved home.
